Well, it’s been years since we played Berkeley. Hot Tuna’s first album was recorded at the New Orleans House… all those years ago. Yesterday we returned… first checking into the Claremont hotel.

    Man, that 2nd set is momentous. From #’s 8-12, with “Barroom Crystal Ball” into “Watersong” both open G makes sense, into “Genesis” …OK I’ll shut up.
    Will Scarlett encore? Bravo!
    Sounds like a good time.
    I’m gettin’ itchy.

    Willie Scarlett is simply the best, I could listen to him for hours. I remember listening to that album on my parent’s console late at night sitting with my head right in the middle of those big old speakers, in the dark of our living room. It was more of a piece of furniture than a record player! It had to be 6 feet long! The stereo sound really got me hooked, I’ve been playing harp ever since, quick question Jorma, what kind of mike does he use, Green Bullet? We played that album till the grooves wore out at college, as you say, good times for sure!

    Dear Jorma,

    I was so happy to see that Will played with Tuna again. Brought a smile to my face!

    Good Times Indeed!

    Best.
